The new “Sustaine” bags made by Glad are 100% made from plants.
“We craft plant-based food storage products so your food is more enjoyable & special. Join us in reducing waste while celebrating your kitchen favorites.” Claims the website
The bags claim to provide “fresher and healthier” food storage that’s better for the environment than the traditional plastic bags we’re all used to.
With an estimated 10.5 million tons of plastic ending up in the ocean per year, it’s easy to see how a product like this with mass consumer adoption from a large company like Glad would make a big ecological impact.
Coca-Cola is one of the largest plastic bottle polluters in the world so let’s cross our fingers that they will adopt this technology soon. As plant based plastics become cheaper and easier to produce lets hope many more companies begin adopting it.
